From their impressive record of seven championships in a 10-year span beginning in their first year of existence to "The Kardiac Kids" and "Dawg Pound" years through the franchise's rebirth in 1999, the Pro Football Hall of Fame will celebrate the rich history of the Cleveland Browns with a temporary exhibit titled, "A Legacy Unleashed" presented by SERVPRO.

The new, multi-area exhibit will open to the public at 9 a.m. Friday, March 15. Scheduled to run daily through Sunday, April 21, the exhibit will feature artifacts honoring the storied history of the Browns: the franchise's eight championships, including a celebration of the anniversaries of the 1954 and 1964 NFL Championships; how PAUL BROWN'S influence is felt in professional football still today; MARION MOTLEY'S and BILL WILLIS' reintegration of football as part of "The Forgotten Four." Player appearances each of the six weekends in the exhibit's run will highlight the programming schedule.

"This exhibit will give thousands of fans, not only in Northeast Ohio but across the country, an opportunity to celebrate the unique history of a franchise that dominated pro football from the moment it took the field in 1946."

Several Browns Hall of Famers and other team Legends will make appearances during the exhibit's run.
